Ceros is a cloud-based experiential content creation platform that empowers marketers and designers to create rich, engaging web content without any coding or development. The Ceros studio is the only platform of its kind with the ability to produce bespoke experiential content at scale, allowing brands to holistically improve consumer touch points across the funnel.
With Ceros, stunning interactive content experiences can be created in a fraction of the time and cost of leveraging traditional development resources. Projects can start from either a blank canvas or from one of the many dynamic, customizable templates available in the studio. The workspace environment is collaborative so multiple users can work together in the platform in real-time, and go from an idea to live content in a matter of days, not weeks.
As an end-to-end solution for content creators, Ceros offers complete creative control. Easily drag and drop assets onto the canvas, add animations and create interactions with the click of a button. Whether seated across the table or across the world, live previewing allows users to share their creations with others instantaneously as they build. Published content is then seamlessly hosted in the cloud and can live anywhere on the web.
For me the experience has been great. I have been working with the software for over 2 years and have created several custom content pages for various brands. They are always improving and adding new features and listen to their users. As an example, you no longer have to create separate experience for desktop or mobile - it now lives in one file and you can just switch between and resize or replace the elements independently.
You don't have to be a developer to understand this software and in a way can be more free in design. You don't have to worry as much about how to implement it - once you have an understanding of how the various animations and other tools work - alone or together to create the effect you need.
Tech support is almost immediate and very helpful.
Overall I'm very happy working with this software - once you get to know it and have a better understanding of the tools and how they can help you, it's pretty simple to create great animated content whether it's a landing page, quiz or a article embedded graph. You can make it as simple or complex as you want and additionally you can embed other code (like JS or forms) to add features that might not exist within Ceros. Ceros has a lot of various standard JS type animations which can transform a page into something that is fun or exciting to scroll through. I'm very impressed with the Inspire gallery showing so many different applications and fun projects using the software and it gives us ideas to use in next project.
While there are not a lot of things I am not happy with, I do wish there were more shape features and line options ( octagon, maybe a free form shape, dotted or double line - sort of like Photoshop ). I also would like to see a masking tool. There are occasional bugs.
Using this platform has made our process of creating interactive and dynamic content so much easier. The response from our internal teams has been incredible. Working with the Ceros team has been great - they are really invested in our success and support us as much as they can.
The software feels familiar, which made onboarding and training quick. The Ceros team provides so many training resources, both on their site and via regular webinars, which helps to train my team and keep us up to date on new features. The IT support team is incredibly responsive - some of the best I’ve experienced!
I think there are a lot of opportunities for the software to expand its functionality around paragraph and character styles that would make layout and styling faster and more streamlined. The animations are good but I would like to see them be more customizable, and the interactions more dynamic, in the future.
Overall, the platform is great and the customer service is amazing! I don't have web development experience. I actually came from commercial printing and self-taught Ceros with their educational tools. I've been able to create dynamic sites.
As an Adobe based designer, the Ceros platform is easy to create a layout with previous Adobe InDesign experience. Ceros Inspire is an amazing tool for quick layout templates to get your ideas following and also features some custom created sites for inspiration. The animation is easy to add and elevate any layout as someone who hasn't worked much with After Effects or other timeline animation tools.
The functionality could use some work. Features like paragraph and character styles are missing in the capabilities. The latest major update added some capabilities like "adaptive" layouts, meaning not quite responsive, but better than nothing mobile layout conversion from desktop designs. The platform isn't great for customizing SEO or social sharing.
We have created some beautiful web pages with Ceros and the support team is extremely helpful and quick to respond! Overall it has been a nice partnership but there are some serious issues that should be addressed.
Ceros is easy to use if the user is familiar with adobe programs. After about one week of daily use, it becomes super easy to navigate and start creating!
Ceros is marketed as a way to create entire websites but it's just not quite there. The animation and design options are extensive but the inability to directly view and edit the code of your experience is such a detriment that it makes it hard to justify using Ceros over hiring a web developer.
As a service provider our industry is based on relationships, so finding new and interactive ways to reach our clients and influencer base is so important. Now we create content through the lens of user interaction and functionality instead of static web and white pages – we're seeing a dramatic increase in our engagements rates across the board, not only in click rates but time spent on the pages themselves.
The learning curve from static to interactive content can be steep, especially for teams that don't have designers available to work solely on this software. Even with Ceros' ability to simplify the process, it can still feel like a heavy lift for teams with high pressure deadlines that already run lean.

One of the biggest problems content marketers face today is consumer content fatigue. As brands continue to pump out more and more digital content, web users are becoming less and less engaged due to high volume and low quality.
Ceros is an interactive content creation platform designed to help marketers and designers create unique content that engages their audiences and keeps them coming back for more. Without any coding or deployments, Ceros lets you build and publish interactive infographics, eBooks, microsites, lookbooks, magazines, and more. Because the platform is in the cloud, you can work collaboratively in real time on projects. When you’re happy with your design, you can publish with the click of a button.
The app is comprised of three main components: the Admin, where you manage your projects, content, and analytics; the Studio, where you can design rich media content and apply animation and interaction effects; and your published content, which is HTML5 code that is hosted or embeddable in your website, blog, or other site.
Ceros integrates with Google Analytics, marketing automation and CRM platforms, lead gen tools, Google Fonts, Noun Project icons, and more.
Ceros is a cloud-based content creation platform that provides marketers and designers with a robust set of tools to design and publish rich, interactive content with no coding. It supports collaborative editing and lets you develop HTML5 content that works on any device type without the need for cross-browser testing, custom coding, or deployments.
Once you’ve published content in Ceros, you can drive traffic to it standalone or embed it into any web page as easily as dropping in a YouTube embed code. On the backend, the platform provides detailed performance metrics such as page views, average time spent, social shares, video plays and play rate, interaction clicks, clicks on outbound links, and more. All data can be exported as CSVs.
The Design Studio is where the actual designing and editing take place. It’s a collaborative platform powered by drag-and-drop technology. The Studio is set up to be extremely intuitive for Adobe InDesign and Photoshop users. The canvas, toolbar, layer panel and inspector panel are very similar to what you’ll find in standard design software. The Studio also provides over 800 Google Font families, thousands of icons from Noun Project, and support for images, GIFs, and video files.
In addition to standard design functionality, Ceros also provides over 60 animation effects and several interaction effects to create dynamic visual effects and layered content.
By default, content built in the Studio is private until it’s published. When you’re ready to publish, all you have to do is click a button. You’ll get a direct link to content that functions as a standalone page and embed code options for you to drop into your blog or website.
Published content can be edited in the Studio. Live content won’t be updated until the Republish button is clicked. Once you republish, your content will be updated everywhere it appears on the web in real time.
Ceros’ analytics dashboard provides the metrics on content performance and audience engagement. The data provided can be used to compare actual performance against targets or tweak content for better results in real time.
The metrics being tracked fall into two categories: Basic and Engagement. Basic analytics tracks high-level performance data about visitors, page views, and referrals. Engagement metrics provide granular data such as average time spent, interaction clicks, social shares, video plays, and link clicks. Analytics data can be exported as CSVs.
Ceros also integrates with Google Analytics, marketing automation and CRM platforms, and other analytics platforms.
Ceros Academy is a section of the Ceros website where video tutorials explaining how Ceros is used are available on demand. It’s divided into several sections, with each section containing subsections for organization. The Getting Started section provides video overviews of the Ceros Admin and Ceros Studio, how images and videos are uploaded into the design canvas, animating content, and using layers and interactions.
Advanced Editing shows which editing tools and functions are available, such as fonts, time-triggered events, anchor points, smart groups, and vector icons. Publishing and Embedding discusses how to publish experiences, embed Ceros content into websites or social media pages, use vanity domain names, among others. Software Development Kit tackles SDK-related queries, and Analytics explains basic and engagement analytics and how to link Google Analytics with Ceros.
On the design side, Ceros integrates with Google Fonts and Noun Project’s icon library. On the marketing side, Ceros integrates with Google Analytics; marketing automation platforms like HubSpot, Eloqua, and Marketo; ad retargeting; lead gen platforms; and more.
